Enteng ng Ina Mo (lit. "Your Mother's Enteng") is a 2011 Filipino fantasy comedy parody film starring Vic Sotto and Ai-Ai de las Alas.[1] It is a joint production by Star Cinema, M-Zet Productions, APT Entertainment and OctoArts Films and is a cross-over to the Enteng Kabisote and Tanging Ina series. It is an official entry to the 2011 Metro Manila Film Festival[2] and was released on December 25, 2011.[3]

The movie is a last installment of Ang Tanging Ina film series and the eighth movie installment based on TV sitcom, Okay Ka, Fairy Ko!.


Enteng Kabisote (Vic Sotto) wants to retire as the perennial hero of Engkantasya and have a normal life with his family without the magical elements. Ina Montecillo (Ai-Ai delas Alas) longs to have the right partner to be with her for the rest of her life.

One day, Enteng is placed under a powerful evil spell by Engkantasya's evil fairy Satana to fall in love with another woman. And when he meets Ina, he exerts all the effort Ina to fall for him. Ina, on the other hand, slowly opens her heart for this new opportunity of love.

Enteng then tries his best to be a father to Ina's children even if they are not fully supportive of him. But when their relationship gets serious, Ina discovers the truth – Enteng already has a family.

Box office

The film captured the number one spot on the first day of 2011 Metro Manila Film Festival box office race with a whooping ₱38.5 million gross well ahead of the runners-up, Ang Panday 2, and Segunda Mano with ₱20 million and ₱18.25 million gross respectively.[6] [7]
During its opening day, the film grossed over ₱38.5 million nationwide making it as the highest-grossing film on its first day of all-time in the Philippines breaking the records of Spiderman and Avatar. On its 2nd Day, the movie total gross is ₱69 million. It is higher than Ang Panday 2, with ₱38 million and Segunda Mano with ₱35 million. On its third day, (according to MMFF committee) Enteng ng Ina Mo grossed 91.9 million. Enteng ng Ina Mo breaks the 4 Day Record of The Unkabogable Praybeyt Benjamin(₱109 million) with a record of ₱110 Million. After 4 weeks of showing, the film grossed P 237 million and became the third highest-grossing Filipino film of all time and highest-grossing MMFF film of all time.


The film was graded "B" by the Cinema Evaluation Board of the Philippines.[8]

Antonio Siegfrid O. Alegado of Business World described that the film could have been better had it not been hampered by poor editing as it was clear that the fusion of the families of Enteng and Ina was done in rather sloppy fashion. The film, however, was saved by the Tanging Ina cast thanks to nice performances.[9]

Mark Angelo Ching of PEP.ph gave the film a stronger review and described it as "the perfect mix of humor and fantasy that MMFF moviegoers look for year after year." The review also noted the solid performances of Gwen Zamora, Xyriel Manabat, and Thou Reyes.[10]

In regards to the film's concept of doing a cinematic crossover of two established characters, Philbert Ortiz Dy stated that "filmmakers were content to just have the two big stars together on screen, giving them dialogue from other movies and pushing towards some ridiculous adventure climax".[11]
